The New York Yankees really knew how to pluck talent away from the Red Sox for a time didn’t they?

Waite Hoyt arrived to the Bronx via a trade from the Red Sox and he would be a significant part of the Yankees rotation throughout the 1920’s helping them win three World Series titles over that timeframe.  As a Yankee, Hoyt recorded 157 Wins including back-to-back seasons of 22 and 7 and 23 and 7 in 1927 and 1928.  He would enter the Baseball Hall of Fame via the Veteran’s Committee in 1969.
